Linden Comansa was a corporation that started manufacturing tool and jig in the early 1960s. They went by the name "Imausa". The company started out supplying mainly the bigger sub-contractors to the then booming automotive industry
Around that same time, there was a strong industrial expansion in Spain. This period saw Imausa making more sophisticated machine tools, jigs and other tools for both in-house and external applications. In addition, the company specialized in making pre-fabricated steel structures especially for industrial buildings.
Imausa's initiation into the crane market was an almost inevitable if not logical step. The Spanish tourist industry exploded to soon become amongst the biggest tourism magnets in the globe. This mass expansion of course brought a parallel demand for hospitals, schools and housing amongst other things. The corporation became extremely busy, really fast.
The first simple cranes produced were saddle-jib. These equipments were best suited for the particular building methods being used at that time. The very first crane model eventually grew into a range of cranes with a capacity ranging from 12 to 42 metric-tons.
Linden Comansa saddle-jib cranes had already met the 200 metric-ton barrier by the early 1970s. Linden Comansa has surpassed the standard and has continued to engineer and design cranes which exceed the 900 metric ton capacity. There is presently manufacturing and design facilities that permit the production and development of more incredible and even larger machinery.
There are several particular advantages offered by the unique Linden 8000 Modular System crane, that made it a logical addition to the range Linden Comansa offered to clients all around the globe. These customers all over the world have bought around 12,000 Linden Comansa cranes in addition to the approximately 6000 machines manufactured by Linden-Alimak in Sweden. These different other cranes were made prior to the acquisition of the world-wide manufacturing and selling rights of this particular modular system.
